S3Br. ChUp. &c

om at the beginning of their vidyā aakarī or mystical formulary in six syllables [viz. om mai padme hū] ; according to T. om may be used in the following senses: praave , ārambhe , svīkāre , anumatau , apā*ktau , asvīkāre , magale , śubhe , jñeye , brahmai ; with preceding a or ā , the o of om does not form vddhi (au) , but gua (o) Pa1n2. 6-1 , 95.)
